This recipe comes off a blog called Witty In The City. Where she said: "Basic and simple to put together yet creates such a big pay off. This chicken, quite simply, is one of the most savory things I’ve ever eaten. If you are the busiest person on the planet and don’t have much cooking experience, but you have to prepare a meal to woo the love of your life, cook this chicken!" I agree !!! it is a favorite dish well liked in our house too
